Ask a Dog Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Good Morning and welcome to Just answer. I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
I am so sorry to hear about your situation...I know this is hard.
It appars that Buddy is now confused which is bringing in these fears and distress. The first thing to do is to purchase a DAP Collar at the pet store, This is a canine pheromone that acts as a calming agent and will help Buddy past this.
Next , you will have to "desensitize" him to these things he fears by exposing him to these such as petting him and giving him his food.Do this over and over until Buddy understands that these will not harm him.
If he is still barking in the kennel, your vet will have anti anxiety mediication that can ease this stress so he will start to become comfortable in his situation. This is given for 1-2 months to help him past this change.
Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please Reply so I can clarify for you
Sincerely, Dr. Loretta
Thank you for your reply. Am I correct in saying that in your opinion he may be undergoing stress signs or anxiety and that maybe I should take him to a local vet for some medication? I am very pleased with your prompt reply and for your information above.
